A report in The Times says Ford is stepping up preparations to move production out of the UK because of growing uncertainty over Brexit.
Commenting, Ben Bradshaw MP, leading supporter of People’s Vote, said:
“After Nissan, this latest warning from yet another leading car manufacturer should set alarm bells ringing.
“The Government cannot continue to play politics with the 13,000 jobs at Ford and countless more livelihoods which rely on their supply chains.
“If the botched Brexit plan that's being pushed by the Government leads to lost manufacturing jobs, it will not be forgiven or forgotten by this or the next generation of working people.
“No-one voted for a Brexit deal that decimates our highly skilled automotive and manufacturing sectors. This growing crisis shows why the only way forward is to give the public a final say with a People’s Vote.”
